Books By Author Carlo Levi
Fear of Freedom, Paperback (March 2008)
Carlo Levi (1902-1975) was a painter, writer, and antifascist Italian from a Jewish family whose political activism forced him into exile for most of the Second World War. Written as war clouds were gathering over Europe, this work is also a powerful indictment of our contemporary moral and political failures.
Fleeting Rome, Hardback (July 2004)
Only a renaissance man could have described this glorious city in its heyday. And only Carlo Levi, writer, painter, politician, and one of the last century's most celebrated talents, could depict Rome at the height of its optimism and vitality after World War II.
Christ Stopped at Eboli, Paperback (May 2000)» View all books by Carlo Levi
Exiled to a remote and barren corner of Italy for his opposition to Mussolini, Carlo Levi entered a world cut off from history and the state, hedged in by custom and sorrow, without comfort or solace, where, eternally patient, the peasants lived in an age-old stillness and in the presence of death - for Christ did stop at Eboli.
